Cleveland, Ohio – November 9, 2016 – Attorney Allen Tittle from Tittle & Perlmuter, along with attorney Ken Knabe, recently helped a single mother injured in a car accident win a $75,000 verdict, after only being offered $2,500 previously to settle the claim, following a four-day civil trial in Cuyahoga County.
The single mother was rear-ended at a speed of approximately 25-mph and suffered intense neck pain immediately following. After several medical evaluations, it was determined that she suffered from a bulging disc as a result of the accident – a condition that would affect her permanently. As a result of the injury sustained in the car crash, the injured party often would suffer from muscle spasms that affected her everyday activities.
Although the negligence of the other driver was admitted, a trial still took place regarding the issue of damages, as the Defendant and her insurance company offered only $2,500 to settle the case. Throughout the trial, the insurance company’s defense lawyers painted the young woman as an “opportunistic liar” – something Attorney Tittle did not take lightly. After the trial, Attorney Tittle said the following “I am sick of insurance companies minimizing my client’s injuries. Sometimes, you just have to take a stand – I think this verdict will help do that.”
The case is still currently pending as Attorney Tittle has filed a Motion in the Court requesting prejudgment interest on the verdict dating back to the day of the accident. Prejudgment interest is interest that accrues on the amount of a legal award from the time the injury occurs to the time judgment is entered by the Court.
The case is captioned Kaylee Pritchett v. Ann Jones, et al., Cuyahoga County Case No. CV-15-844632.
